Daimler AG subsidiary Setra, of the commercial bus and touring coach fame, has just reached a milestone in Switzerland. The company just finished the delivery of its 2000th bus in the country.

The bus—an S 431 DT TopClass 400 double-decker, which seats 78 people and is classified as a 4-star unit—was for operator Ernst Marti AG, and is intended for the company’s long-distance holiday trips bound for Spain and Italy.

Heinrich Marti, the operator’s Managing Director, was ecstatic at the handover ceremony. “In my opinion Setra’s flagship model, the S 431 DT, is the product that offers the most complete and best-rounded concept overall, while the total package that it comes with is, quite simply, just right,” he said.

This particular unit comes with a host of features together with an exceptional interior. It has a Lane Assistant System, Active Brake Assist, and a system in the engine compartment that automatically takes care of any flames. In addition, the bus is equipped with its own microwave oven, gallery kitchen, and a coffee machine that has a 40-cup capacity.

Setra has been producing commercial buses for Switzerland since 1953, and that makes it around 34 buses delivered every year. That’s a pretty solid figure, considering the high quality of the buses the company makes.
